Valentine’s Day Gifts For Wine Lovers

Valentine’s Day. A day to celebrate love. A day to celebrate the significant other in your life.

A day to give and receive romantic gifts.

What says romance more than gifts related to wine? Here are my favourite picks for Valentine’s Day gifts for the wine lover in your life.

The Love of Chocolate – Brix, Bordeaux & Pinot Set $59.99

  • BRIX Chocolate Sampler:
    One 4 ounce brick each of extra dark 70%, medium dark 60%, smooth dark 54%, and milk 46% 
  • Domaines Baron Rothschild Reserve Speciale Bordeaux Rouge:
    Generous, rich and full-flavored on the palate, this wine has a long finish with hints of pepper and licorice.

Riedel Black Tie Bliss Wine Decanter  $166.95

Your love of wine is interpreted at last by Europe’s finest glassblowers. A graceful streak of black, Riedel’s trademark colour, adorns one side, while the heart-shaped center, recessed to aid pouring, remains pure and clear. Mouth-blown of 24% lead crystal. 

Heart Shaped Corkboard $24.95

Turn your love for wine into a handsome home accent. Approx. 60 wine corks are needed to complete this Wine Cork Heart. Note: Wine corks vary in size, and some will need to be cut to fit. Sustainably farmed mahogany frame. Hardware for hanging included. You supply the corks, or purchase separately. 

Williams-Sonoma Wine & Food Cookbook  $29.95

This approachable guide offers a broad overview of wine that focuses on general styles – rather than the minutiae of specific varietals and regions – to help simplify wine-and-food pairings. Author Joshua Wesson, owner of the Best Cellars wine shop in Manhattan, divides wines by their characteristics (sparkling, crisp, soft and rich white wines; rosé wines; three groups of red wine; and dessert wines) and profiles each type. More than 50 recipes are included. Hardcover, 176 pages. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Brix Chocolate-for-Wine Gift Set  $24.95

Every pairing is a match made in heaven, for every award-winning chocolate is specially blended to bring out the best in wine—and vice versa. A how-to booklet, pairing suggestions, tasting notes, and the following contents are all included in a quaint gift box resembling a hardcover book. 
Four assorted, 4 oz., all-natural Ghanaian chocolate bars:

  • Milk Chocolate, 46% cacao
  • Smooth Dark Chocolate, 54% cacao
  • Medium Dark Chocolate, 60% cacao
  • Extra Dark Chocolate, 70% cacao


Recycled Wine Bottle Platters $18.00

Made from 100 percent recycled glass, these wine bottle-shaped platters will provide a lovely backdrop to the cheese, crackers, fruits or vegetables you serve at your next wine tasting party. Each piece undergoes an 8-hour process to emerge as a one-of-a-kind platter. These striking platters also shed new light on candles, give spoons a rest and make for an interesting butter dish. Choose from chardonnay or bordeaux. Spreader included. 

Wine Cork Candles  $19.95

Wine Cork Bottle Candles, what a lovely idea. Set moods reminiscent of intimate bistros with wax candles nearly exact replicas of actual corks—that fit into the neck of bottles as safely as stoppers do. Set of 4. 

Valentine’s Day Wine Tote $9.95

A gift of wine is made even more special when presented with Cupid’s arrows and the proverbial key to someone’s heart. Oversize arrows are printed in crimson on cotton canvas wine bags. A paper tag reveals the not-so-secret admirer’s identity. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Williams-Sonoma Wine Vinegars $10.00

Our wine vinegars are derived from well-balanced blends of grape varietals using a slow fermentation process, ensuring complexity and depth of flavor.

  • A superb addition to vinaigrettes and marinades, these versatile vinegars are also ideal for making savoury pan sauces.
  • Red Wine Vinegar: A robust, full-bodied vinegar with rich, mellow flavor. Depending on the season’s harvest, it’s made from classic combinations of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Gamay grapes.
  • White Wine Vinegar: A crisp, light-bodied vinegar with fresh, delicate flavor. It’s made from a well-balanced blend of traditional grape varietals, including Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadet.
  • A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
